skype-logoSkype has been done for most of today for me and this is immensely frustrastrating! How am I meant to talk to my chommies and organise my plans for the weekend!? Cha not cool bru!

Some people were tuning Microsoft for finally completing their take over with one user tweeting: Skype is down and so is their website. Microsoft must have completed its take over!

So you want to carry on talking to your girl or what ever. Here is how to fix the Skype error on your windows machine.

Windows XP

  • Close Skype.
  • Right-click the Skype icon in the system tray (at the bottom right of the screen)
  • Choose Quit.
  • Ensure that “Show hidden files and folders” is switched on.
  • Click Start and then Run…
  • Type control folders and click OK.
  • Select the View tab and ensure relevant entry is enabled.
  • Locate the shared.xml file.
  • Click Start and then Run…
  • Type %appdata%\skype and click OK.
  • Delete the shared.xml file.
  • Restart Skype. The shared.xml file will be recreated.

Simple as that!

Click here to fix it on your Mac or Linux.
